Natalie's Score: 90/100
Red Rooster produces a beautiful rendition of gewurztraminer with lovely spice notes, lychee and roase petal, but never over-the-top. Perfect for Asian dishes and curries. This is a BC VQA wine.
Gewürztraminer food pairings: spicy pork, pho noodles.

Really like this wine but found that I had a reaction to it that left me stuffed up next day
|Dale Schierbeck rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
One sip, and you’re caught in a flavourful and syrupy bouquet of white fruit: pear and lychee. And, if fruit-forward isn’t enough, well, it ends with a splash of citrus: yes, as the label reads, you will certainly taste a fully-ripe and sweet grapefruit at the end. Produced on the southern tip of Okanagan Lake between Penticton and Naramata, the wine even pulls in a bit of that same jack pine that circles the Okanagan Valley. With a very floral bouquet, it is almost like pressing your face into a spring pear orchard. Ahh … that takes me back.
With decent acidity, despite the off-dry taste, and an almost peppery finish, each sip cleans the palette and makes this a very versatile wine that pairs well with everything from poultry to fruit-forward dishes – even buttery sweet dishes with some spice. Indeed, it paired phenomenally with my White Chile and even better with a spinach salad topped mango and strawberries and persimmon vinaigrette.
|Winner of a Silver Medal at the 2013 Pacific Rim Wine Competition. Candied citrus notes mingle with potpourri, white rose, white pepper and a touch of lychee. Very juicy, soft and generous. Excellent fruit throughout. Spice note emerges on the finish. Source: Vintages Wine Ratings and Reviews Nov. 2013|
